I am so proud to be the Headteacher at Styal Primary. It is a fantastic little school with a lot going on !

We pride ourselves at Styal on our family atmosphere. Everyone one knows and looks after each other. We value the individual and make sure they are able to reach their potential –socially, emotionally and academically.

I have been teaching in primary schools for 20 years now and have been a Headteacher for 9 years. 7 years of this has been as head at Styal. I have also worked in a variety of different schools in Poynton and Macclesfield. I love all sports and used to swim competitively for Manchester. At the weekend I love to spend time with my 3 children, walking and of course swimming.
